This paper gives the results of cost studies made to determine the most economical size and type of boiler and turbogenerator unit to be used in a new generating station for the Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Incorporated. Some of the factors considered include the economical capacity of the unit; single boiler versus two boilers per turbine; unit-type design versus a common steam-header system and reheat versus nonreheat units. Related factors were the number and type of feedwater heaters and alternate arrangements of boiler feed pumps.
